Thank you, Vance.  That would certainly work, though I would rather reserve
tunneling with SSH for installations where the firewall configuration is
less flexible.

Since I have access to the firewalls, I would rather open up some high port that
my SSL Erlang nodes are 'guarding', waiting for a connection from/to another
SSL Erlang node, and refusing all other access.  

Hence the need to pre-determine and control what ports will be used by the 
SSL Erlang nodes.
